Like mother, like son

Ask any mother who’s made a man out of a son and she’ll tell you: teaching is never a one-way street. In fact, the moms and sons you’ll see here can attest to that very ethos. But enough from us, we’ll let them do the talking.

Turner on Real Estate: does it make more sense to rent or buy in Toronto?

Some weeks ago, a most ugly house in North Toronto was swarmed. It’s a semi, built like its neighbours about 90 years ago, has a mutual drive, is on a residential street, one block north of an arterial. The current owners added an addition to the original 1,100-square-foot, two-storey cube. Rooflines don’t match, the exterior’s stucco-over-OSB and the lack of design work makes the squirrels woozy.

Sewell: casino divides city, fight takes flight

It is entirely unexpected that a proposal for a downtown casino would become such a watershed issue for Toronto. When first proposed last year, it was seen as a divisive issue, and best thinking was that the vote on city council would be close, perhaps dividing the downtown councillors from those representing  the suburbs. The No Casino Toronto group was seen as insular and ineffective.

Turner on Real Estate: a slow and steady march to the bottom is well underway

Each spring, they migrate back to the well-treed ’hoods of North Toronto, flitting from property to property in a fecund frenzy. You can stand there, quietly watching, certain there’s but one obsession on their minds: Nesting. These are the house hornies, the drivers of GTA real estate.

The Comedy Issue: Italia Ricci

Life does not always go according to plan — and Italia Ricci probably knows that better than most. The up-and-coming actress and native of Richmond Hill says she never pegged herself as the funny one, but as it so happens, she got her first break with a role in American Pie Presents Beta House (a spinoff of the popular teen comedy series). And, as most teen comedy romps do, Ricci’s story starts with a party.
